Victoria WildFlower Garden & Reserve

1/12

About 100 kilometres from Cape Town, in the charming town of Caledon, Venster Kloof Nature Garden, also known as the Caledon Wildflower Garden, is a wonderful space in which to spend a little time.

There is a little dam quite near the entrance, fields of daisies (depending on the time of year you are there), a rocky kloof filled with aloes that leads up into the mountains around Caledon, and a fairly extensive network of paths that take a while to walk. The central parts of the garden, in particular, are beautiful, and during spring (around September) rather inspiring through which to stroll.

The garden is apparently landscaped on land bequeathed to the municipality by Queen Victoria in 1899. The garden was established in 1927 and forms part of the greater nature reserve up on the Swartberg Mountain north of Caledon.
